The Wedding of James and Helen took place on the 1st of July 2017 at Pendennis Castle and afterwards at St Michaels Hotel, Falmouth.
I was making the trip down to Pendennis Castle today in Layla as unfortunately Lily had to go to the garage to have a new gear box 🙁
Helen had already mentioned on the phone that some of the Wedding party were VW enthusiasts so it was a shame really that we couldn’t bring Lily, however, Layla is also one of our gorgeous splitties in cream and white with a ragtop roof so I was certain they would not be disappointed.
I arrived at St Michael’s Hotel Falmouth to shuttle two groups of family members to Pendennis Castle for James & Helen’s wedding. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.
On the first run I met James and his groomsmen who were travelled up to the castle in a beautiful old Morgan. One of the groomsmen, Robin, loves VW’s and couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw Layla driving up towards the Castle.
I waited for a few minutes for him to ‘check’ her out before returning to the hotel to pick up the second group.
Helen & her brother Robert arrived a couple of minutes behind me in the Morgan.
After the ceremony they had photographs, drinks and canapés in the castle grounds and the canons were fired, which was a huge surprise for their guests.
Before we departed I made Robin’s day by letting him drive Layla across the Castle lawn. He was over the moon and thanked me saying he wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight thinking about it!
It was then the same trips again in reverse, shuttling everyone back down to the St Michaels Hotel. I actually dropped them all off by Gylly café as I thought they were going to have some photographs on the beach. Perhaps they decided it was too busy so they all walked up through the gardens of the Hotel for their reception.
I congratulated Mr & Mrs Adcock and their daughter Emmie who was their flower girl and wished them many happy years together, a very lovely family and group of friends.
